‘HOW TO….’ SERIES

The DRDP is designed to provide opportunities in relation to all the broad demands that doctoral work makes of a researcher, but we know that from time to time specific areas and topics arise which are not specifically covered by existing sessions. The ‘How To…’ series is designed to meet these specific demands. These one off events will be organised in order to respond to feedback from students – via emails, Graduate School Assemblies, through student reps. So far events have been organised on starting a journal, on qualitative research and on using archives. Let us know when new needs arise and we can organise a ‘How To’ event to meet them.
As these are responsive events rather than scheduled sessions on the DRDP, you will be notified by email with registration details for each specific event.
